While on holiday in Briancon France due to the unusally bad weather, six days of rain, the rivers have been closed to kayak access due to the water level and sadly deaths on the river.
I have been doing some via ferrata in the rain and then some snow boating on the col d'izoard at 2000mtrs. There is a video on youtube of a first decscent of "Chippy Tea". http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=DltU6JbqIUk
Some more of the Via Ferrata to come later.
